The Hive

The Hive is a 6400 square-foot area in Hoover Hall that consists of a fabrication shop, a computer lab, faculty offices, and a project assembly/CAD classroom. Students in The Hive are constantly buzzing with innovative ideas that they CAD and build.  The Hive is a space where “if you can dream it, you can build it”.

Boyd Lab – 1260 Hoover Hall

Boyd Lab is a fabrication facility in The Hive that supports Mechanical Engineering classes and ISU student clubs. It offers hand tools, power tools, milling and turning equipment, wood working equipment, metal-working equipment, MIG and TIG welders, and a plasma cutter. Students who complete the required training can use the equipment during lab hours, or they can submit job requests for the shop to complete their projects for them.
